General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Someone on here said they eat it by itself and I thought that's bullshit but it's the real deal. No reason to eat other cheese

Ugghhhhh, I was hoping they were already at the Phoenix or Scottsdale locations, but looks like I'll have to wait. Report back asap please.


Alright tried the Impossible Burger. I'm not vegan, but I haven't eaten meat in 18 years. It looks, tastes and it's consistency is unlike any veg burger I've ever had. I felt kind of uncomfortable eating it honestly. My partner liked it, and she said it's consistency is much more soft than ground beef. I couldnt get into it. It was $18.

I do the Daiya cheddar Mac, Gardein tenders, wing sauce, some ranch or blue cheese dressing, and then bask in my own gluttony.

the daiya mac and cheese is on point
I've rediscovered TVP from my local co-op.
They have "beef" flavor, that looks like dry dog food, but we it in a crockpot with veggies and it was bomb.

Made some hearts of palm tacos last night, and they were fucking insanely good. This would work with jackfruit too. I top with some cilantro, red cabbage, lime juice, fucking anything.


1 14.5-ounce can of hearts of palm
1 cup veggie stock
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 yellow onion, sliced into strips

Preparation

Drain and rinse the hearts of palm. Use your fingers to shred the hearts of palm into thin strips.

Whisk together all of the other ingredients, excluding the hearts of palm, into a small bowl.

Sauté the sliced onion in the olive oil over medium heat in a deep skillet until translucent. Stir in your hearts of palm shreds and then pour your marinade into the skillet.

Allow the hearts of palm and onion to simmer in the skillet over medium heat until the marinade has been completely absorbed (20-25 minutes). Stir occasionally. Done.

I made my own vegan beer brats for july 4th. it was basically this recipe but I substituted the cannellini beans with like triple the amount in quinoa, wild rice, and black beans, and added paprika, ghost pepper, and chipotle pepper. I forgot to use the mustard powder. I used leffe brown ale because we went to whole foods and that was the only brown ale. I wanted newcastle because it's a lot cheaper and doesn't has that belgian taste. the rest of the leffe was good to drink though. I don't know if leffe is vegan or not but I don't care because I'm not vegan.

I did the prep/steamed them the night before, then refrigerated them. next afternoon I grilled them 'till they had grill marks. they tasted weird the day-of. you could really taste the gluten. it basically tasted like gluten and ghost pepper. a few days later I sliced the leftovers, fried them, and made spinach pasta to go with. that time around they were actually great. I even tried them before frying and they tasted a lot better. maybe I needed to have them sit longer? or steam them longer? I will have to experiment.

This might come off really lame but do you guys know of any YouTube channels that do the whole "tasty" style of recipes with overhead shots and all that? Basically a cooking channel that is updated frequently and the recipes are not too difficult to follow?

I'll watch vegan zombie, vegan anarchist, hot for food, and a few others.

This new spot not super far from me in west chester just opened called love again local..all vegan sandwich shop. I used to get their cookies whenever I'd see them. The sandwiches are unreal and worth the 45 min drive from philly.

Going vegan again after 5+ years of being vegetarian. Realized eggs are fucking disgusting, along with most cheese and milk. Ate cheese and eggs after 2 weeks of not eating them and instantly regretted it. I'm moving to Brooklyn in October, what are you suggestions?

no talk of Daiya being bought out by a big Japanese pharma company that still tests on animals? I know a lot of people on here hate Daiya already, but I definitely won't be buying their products in the future. They got a ton of blow back on their IG account-wonder how this will hurt their sales in the long run.

I've been sssssslowly dialing back on the substitutes, so with that and Field Roast and FYH, I'll be fine with my fix. Honestly the Daiya product itself is showing its age anyhow.

On an unrelated note: field roast frankfurters are so fucking good. They are pretty dense, so I cut them in half and fry em up. Texturally, it's the closest thing to an actual hot dog out there.

I'm kinda down for all those. Usually Yves or Lightlife. Whenever I make dogs I throw a bunch of toppings on them anyway so the dog is more for texture than flavor

Pasta! mixed an avocado, Heidi Ho cashew cheese, follow your heart parmesan crumbles, and some pasta water from the boil to creat the sauce. tossed some BAYBAYYYYYY heirloom tomatoes that had olive oil tossed on them and light salt into the oven. added garbanzo beans to the tomatoes once the noodles had about 5 mins left. tossed together for an awesome and healthy pasta[/img]

In case you animal lovers wanted to help Houston post floods; the no kill shelter I volunteer and foster for is great on supplies, but could use financial help. There aren't many no kill shelters here, and they are at double their capacity now. Surgeries, medications, etc. cost money. So if you want to help; http://www.friends4life.org/how-to-help/donate/ They also have amazon smile. Thanks!

bumping with some vegan youtube channels I've been really into lately

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCF-ACP ... bmw/videos -- Avant Garde Vegan

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQBG3P ... eMG2gDAyOQ -- Peaceful Cuisine. The music is a little annoying on this one sometimes but it's still excellent overall

post some other ones for me. watching vegan cooking channels is my new hobby

Those are what my girl and I bring camping. For real used to think faux meat was disgusting altogether, but these dogs changed the game completely for me.

Field Roast has a presence at Safeco Field, so you can get their frankfurters while watching the Mariners. Expensive, but rad if you want to eat a dog at a baseball game.

Oh...and Field Roast has bite-size corndogs (using frankfurters), buffalo wings, and cutlets now.

Anyone try the new Daiya shreds? Put some on tortillas last night and was surprised by the cheesy smell when I took them out of the microwave. Suprised again when it stretched several inches after taking a bite. A step in the right vegan cheese direction.
